    Pros

    Great first job for a young employee, high school or college. Gain warm sales experience, acquire people skills, build references. Best Buy offers flexible schedules, decent pay, relaxed working environment and a great employee discount.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity to advance, long periods of standing, lack of product knowledge training and their 'warning' system are all cons. Employees should not be penalized with a 'warning' if they call in sick or are unable to come in due to severe weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Best Buy should be managed like a Mac Store. The associates should be helpful with product demos and should work closely with vendors to gain product knowledge. The sale items should be actively promoted in store and not hidden in back to get people to buy a non sale item. Associates should offer warranties and installation services but no be forced to press them on already paying customers.


  2. Great place to learn and grow

    Pros

    Growing company with lots of opportunity to learn and grow when I was there

    Cons

    Company missed the competition from web based retailers like amazon, which has resulted in financial pressures and lack of investment in the business. Company must figure out how to get its compeitive advantage back.
